You are 4! What a great age you are. Everything is new. Everything is something you want to know more about. You are such a fun little boy; however, in this picture you look twice your age! Mommy and Daddy are so proud that you are our son. We Love You.

We did it -- attempted Mass with both Thomas and Samantha. It started out well. Thomas said that Jesus was up on the cross, we were going to say our prayers and he would be good. Sam still had her shoes on. As we walked in I noticed several beautiful babies – all in white. Thomas and Samantha noticed the large baptismal font. Oh oh……baptisms. While usually a wonderful ceremony, not so good with two little ones an hour away from lunch time. Poor planning on my part. Well, Mass started late and ran even later. We left the big church to sit out front with the other little ones, but couldn’t stay. While I was so disappointed that we didn’t even get to the Profession of Faith, never mind Communion, I did get to sign Alleluia! with Samantha in my arms, and we were there for about an hour. Next time, we will be able to make the entire service; I am sure.

Born yesterday, August 5, 2008 at 6:10 p.m., and weighing 7 lbs, 3 oz., this sweet little girl entered our life (she has been in our hearts for the past 9 months!) Kenny and Brittany have been blessed with a beautiful little life to love, care for, and raise. They both will be wonderful parents. Addison is a lucky little girl!

Here are some random pictures -- some of a belated Easter and our visit with Thomas the Tank Engine. Later on I'll post some pictures of me and my cousins when we were all at my Aunt Dot's memorial service. Until then, have a wonderful Spring.

Sam has a new trick. She will close her eyes, say "Mommy?" and wait for me to say "Where's Sam?" She'll then open her eyes and start laughing! I'll ask her if she's hiding and she says "Ah huh!"

The month started with Thomas going to school! He began attending a Mother’s Day Out program two days a week. What a wonderful experience for him. Other than painting, coloring, doing various craft projects and learning about letters, he learned how to be without Mommy, Daddy or Aunt Goo! He learned about teachers and friends and that we don’t drink babas at school! He really enjoyed his time at St. Catherine’s. We called it his “Little School.”
Next, Thomas got a Big-Boy Bed! So far, so good. We have had a few ups and downs (no pun intended, as he has a loft-style bed!), but all in all he has really taken to his bed.
Today, after three wonderful years at Aunt Goo’s, Thomas and Sam started attending day care, or as we call it “
Yesterday, we were saddened by the news that my Aunt Dottie passed away. Aunt Dottie had a soft heart and was a strong woman. She raised two very wonderful, successful and kind-hearted sons, and left us with a life-time of wonderful memories. She loved candy. She LOVED chocolate cake. I learned some very valuable lessons from Aunt Dot. You always knew where Aunt Dot stood. She was not a wishy-washy woman. I admired her for that. I think she was viewed as “grouchy” because she was sensitive. In order to not get her feelings hurt, she would put on her armor, which happened to be her grouchy mood. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
